As technology advances – smart manufacturing, Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0 – so does the menace of cyber-attacks.  That means, effective, safe data handling and cyber security, grow in importance for the manufacturing sector every year.

The heavyweight report, ‘Cyber Security for Manufacturing’, cites around 48% of all manufacturers have been subject to a cyber-attack and around half of those have experienced a loss as a result.

A breach of your data’s security has the potential to significantly damage your reputation.  Once lost, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to recover.

As manufacturers must declare any personal data they hold with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), following the implementation of GDPR, it is important that you know exactly what data you hold and your reasons for holding it. You must also be able to demonstrate ongoing permission for holding this data.

Data will drive the factories of the future so it’s important you understand your data, protect it and safeguard your systems against cyber-attacks. This enables you to learn how to interpret your data in order to streamline processes, increase profitability and improve sustainability.

Information security calls for a top-down approach which should be led from the leadership right through to the frontline. Good information governance – natural best practice, compliance and security – is embedded within your organisation’s culture.
